Iconic actor Dharmendra is very happy about his renewed association with the great filmmaker Bimal Roy’s family. Dharmendra’s grandson Karan Deol is now married to Bimal Roy’s granddaughter Drisha Acharya.
Dharmendra is happy with renewed association with Bimal Roy’s family through grandson Karan Deol; says, “There’s so much I learnt from Bimal da”
This makes Dharmendra very happy. “Very early in my career I had the privilege of being directed by Bimal da in one of his best works Bandini. Sadly, he passed away soon after and I didn’t get the chance to work with him again. But there was so much that I learnt from working with Bimal da in just one film, although the film centred around the heroine’s character. The film had many memorable songs, but none of them was filmed on me,” said the veteran actor.
Dharmendra, who later went on to do many memorable films with Bimal Roy’s erstwhile assistant Hrishikesh Mukherjee, recalls how he got the role in Bandini. “It was actually Bimal da’s assistant Debu Sen who recommended me to Bimal da. When I went to meet him as a nervous newcomer, he put me at ease by announcing I am doing Bandini. It is one of the life-changing moments of my career,” said Dharmendra.
Dharmendra will next be seen in Karan Johar’s Rocky Aur Rani Kii Prem Kahaani. Also starring Ranveer Singh, Alia Bhatt, Jaya Bachchan and Shabana Azmi, the movie is all set to hit the theatres on July 28.
